The Comedy Store started out as a venue for alternative comedy in the 1980s, and has helped to launch the careers of some of Britain’s best comics: Paul Merton, Alexei Sayle, Rik Mayall, Ben Elton, Simon Pegg and French & Saunders.
The club is surprisingly small inside, but attracts some of the biggest names in the business. It also has a great American-style diner and bar.
- Athena – “. By far one of the best nights I’ve ever had out in London. It was a surprise night out from a Friend and I throughly enjoyed myself. There was a mix of comedians, ones I knew about and didn't. Three acts in total excluding the very funny host, who primarily engaged the audience for his jokes.Definitely planning to go back, I can now understand why it was packed out. If you get the chance, a definite must see .”
- grahamp – “Nice and intimate little place, it's not like a big theatre so you always get a good view. I wouldnt sit near the front though because every time I have been its been quite interactive with the audience. Best to sit out of the way if you are too shy to be involved (which I am sure is most of us!) It is best not to do battle with these guys wits, because they are excellent when it comes to getting a laugh out of someone. I saw one guy try and take them on by returning some one liners, and let's just say that he came off worse! Good bar and they do food too, but nothing too fancy -- burgers and pizza and stuff like that. .”
